good morning. first, our main story. the prime minister has said gps in england should keep their surgeries open for longer to ease pressure on accident and emergency departments. downing street says too many family doctors are closing early and failing to open at weekends, forcing patients to seek treatment in hospitals. our political correspondent, chris mason, reports. for days, the government has faced criticism about its management of the nhs in england. targets have been missed and major alerts declared. seniorfigures in the health service are sounding doom alerts about the future. now the prime minister is turning her attention to family doctors and what they can do to help. a downing street source said this. the doctors‘ union, the british
medical association, said the remarks amounted to scapegoating, in what it called a serious crisis. the association added that a third of gp surgeries in england had unfilled vacancies because the existing workload put doctors off wanting to go into general practice. chris mason, bbc news. in just over an hour we'll be speaking to the chairman of the british medical association's gp committee. the east of england has escaped major flooding, despite fears that storm surges could hit towns along the coast. thousands of people were urged to leave their homes as the environment agency issued i7 severe flood warnings for yesterday evening. but by the early hours of the morning the threat had subsided. simon clemison reports. after a ll after all the words and warning, just the sight and sound of a huge
display of strength by nature. within 5-10 display of strength by nature. within 5—10 minutes it was coming over the walls and just flooding straight in and running all the way down the street. it was awful. about 30 homes were inundated. businesses as well. into the evening, people in the path of the storm surge were still protecting their properties. some were advised to leave, but others in great yarmouth stayed put. we saw it happen in 2013. you have to ta ke we saw it happen in 2013. you have to take precautions. all we did was put up sandbags near the doorways. 0thers put up sandbags near the doorways. others found comfort however they could. special centres opened up. but when high tide arrived in each town, conditions appeared to ease. the environment agency sent in helpers. and more than five miles of temporary darrius. 0fficials helpers. and more than five miles of temporary darrius. officials say that the emergency response was not over the top. the worst is over and the defence is held. the rest
centres will be put away now. to be honest with you, if it had have breached, we would have been in a lot worse situation in these centres would have been needed. it is wise to say we followed everything by the book as far as the environment agency and emergency services were concerned that. in full those of you who want to go home, get out of here. some want to return home. but with warnings being placed, people are being urged not to take chances. simon cleminson, bbc news. we're joined now by alex dunlop who is at great yarmouth, one of the towns that was thought to be at greatest risk. what's the situation this morning, alex? i have to say that here in great yarmouth, people are breathing a collective sigh of relief. this is the river that flows through. last night i was standing here at 930
when the tidal surge came up the river. it came to about two feet below the concrete wall here. it has receded markedly. but none of the towns loop is defences were breached. that said, emergency services said they had to be repaired. five out of 17 of the severe flood warnings along the east anglian coast were in yarmouth. 5000 properties here were at immediate risk. police and the military went and knocked on doors. but in the end, only 2—3 people opted to go to the rest centres. ——2 out of three. most decided to collect their free sandbags and stay at home. many coastal communities here appear to have escaped the worst of the flooding. but further north, isolated homes, businesses, and some roads, where affected by localised
flooding, mainly in north yorkshire. as we stand now, 17 severe flood warnings are still in place. by the number of flood warnings has dropped from 135 down to 80. so the worst appears to be over. thank you for that update on the situation in great yarmouth this morning. the government should publish its brexit plan by mid february at the latest, according to a cross party group of mps. the exiting the eu committee also says parliament should be given a vote on the final deal. here's our business correspondent, joe lynam. next week, theresa may will give a major speech on britain's beach outside the eu, which could give us more of an understanding. she is under pressure from key parties in the commons, including michael gove. the brexit committee says this. it should set out its planned by
mid—february. it should press for a transitional arrangement with the eu if it cannot get a full deal in the two—year time frame. banks in the city should have continued u nfettered city should have continued unfettered access to eu markets. they said they should offer mps a vote on whatever is agreed at the end of the negotiation. we are made up end of the negotiation. we are made up of people who campaigned for leave and remain. we have come together because we know whatever side we took, we need the best deal for britain. the government said this. but this report by cross—party mps is likely to be seized upon by those hoping for a softer and certainly more transparent exit from the eu. joe lynam, bbc news. jeremy corbyn will defend his leadership of the labour party today after claims by a centre—left think tank it was too weak to win an election.
the fabian society warned labour would lose out on returning to power unless it could secure a coalition. at a speech in london, mr corbyn will say his party offers "a complete break from a rigged system." he'll also outline labour plans to bring care homes into public ownership. the labour leaderjeremy corbyn will say his party would take care homes into public ownership, rather than see them close because of financial difficulties. donald trump has suggested he would be open to lifting the sanctions president 0bama imposed on russia, but only if moscow proves useful. mr trump said he would keep sanctions intact for a period of time, but indicated he would be looking for a new relationship with russia. sarah corker reports. with days to go until donald trump becomes the 45th president, washington is still reeling from an extraordinary week of allegations. the senate intelligence committee will now examine close ties between moscow and members of donald trump's
campaign teams. and that the kremlin ordered a cyber attack on the democratic party to influence the election. the american people are owed the truth. there is a lot of evidence to say that this is an issue of high interest to be american people. the strength and integrity of our own democracy. the president—elect is angry and repeatedly denounced the allegations. it is all they news. it did not happen. with an eye on future relations, donald trump has also said he is willing to work with russia and china, provided they can operate. he told the wall street journal this. when asked about the one china policy, under which the us no longer acknowledges taiwan, he said this. everything is under negotiation. meanwhile, back in washington, the
focus turns to friday the 20th of january, the inauguration. rehearsals have already started, as the nation gets ready to usher in a new political order, with the rest of the world watching what happens next. sarah corker, bbc news. the us house of representatives has voted to begin the process to repeal president 0bama's health insurance laws, known as 0bamacare. the senate approved the measure on thursday. the law provides medical coverage for more than 20 million americans, but president—elect donald trump has tweeted that 0bamaca re "will soon be history." banks still need to do more to improve their day—to—day services, particularly when it comes to being clear about fees and charges, according to a customer satisfaction survey, which? found several of the biggest banks, such as rbs, natwest and hsbc, came out bottom. the consumers' association say banks are doing better with mobile banking, but could improve in other areas. banks need to do much better when it
comes to the transparency of their fees and charges. it is really important so that people know how much they are being charged for their bank account so that they know how much they could change if they move to another account. and so they do not get hit with unexpected fees and charges. police in the united states say a girl who was stolen as a newborn from a hospital in florida 18 years ago has been found alive in south carolina. kamiyah mobley, who was living under another name, was found after a tip—off. the woman who raised her has been charged with kidnapping. in south carolina we found in it and year old woman with the same date of birth but a different name. —— an 18—year—old. this young woman may in fa ct 18—year—old. this young woman may in fact be kamiyah mobley. horse racing could be set for a funding boost as the government reforms the betting levy, which the british
horse racing authority say could add £30 million to the sport. for the first time, bets being taken by overseas on line firms will have to pay back 10% of the profits they make from uk customers. it's hoped it will come into force in april. when some 22—year—olds get a new set of wheels they can pose a menace to themselves and others. but one young man is not going to be picking up any speeding tickets. bert, an african spurred tortoise, was fitted with wheels to allow him to move unassisted after injuring his back legs. he's now trundling happily around his home at the dinosaur adventure park in norwich. and unlike other motorists, he doesn't have to shell out for petrol. look at him go. he does not have to sheu look at him go. he does not have to shell out for petrol. did you think that one up as 7 ? i can't believe i called
7 i can't believe i called him a man. shall we have a look at what is on the front pages? the guardian. the image of lord snowden. they announced his death yesterday at the age of 86. the main story about brexit negotiations. the brexit negotiator has shown the first signs of backing away from a hardline approach, saying he wants to have easy a ccess approach, saying he wants to have easy access for banks to the city. a lot of discussion about that and we will look into that later this morning. the times. another picture of lord snowden at his family home. and the lead story this morning. theresa may ordering gps to stay open seven days a week. she blames doctors who close earlier. open all
hours. 0rders doctors who close earlier. open all hours. orders from theresa may described in the daily mail. 0pen all week or lose your funding. the suggestion is many people are not able to see gps when they want to. demand is not there. especially on sunday afternoons. we will talk about that later on this morning. cani about that later on this morning. can i give you an insight into this one. a third having an argument with a penguin. —— bird. it turns the table on the bully bird and attacks it back. it is a baby penguin? yes. it says i will not have any of this and fights back. interesting pictures. it is nice to see the underdog, or the underpenguin,
getting its own back. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. the main stories this morning: gp surgeries in england have been told by downing street they must stay open longer and give patients appointments when they want or risk losing funding. towns and villages along england's east coast have escaped significant flooding after a change in wind direction prevented a storm surge. and coming up on the programme: # forget about... she waltzed her way to win strictly, now joanne clifton is taking the lead. we caught up with the dancer as she prepares to take centre stage here's louise lear with a look at this morning's weather. a lot of talk of whether over the last few days. what's going on? good morning, everybody. a relatively quiet day, i thought i would start with a tree growing out
of my head! let's look at some weather watchers photos from yesterday, a bit of lying snow in parts of la narkshire yesterday, a bit of lying snow in parts of lanarkshire but the seas we re parts of lanarkshire but the seas were the real talking point through the afternoon. this is the scene in whitley bay. a bit of flooding in parts of the southern downs through the east coast area but the flood defences helped certainly. the winds are going to ease during the day and things are a bit quieter. a cold and frosty start for many. there's still a scattering of showers running down through the north sea coasts. they will continue to be a bit of a nuisance and if you catch one or two of those showers, it could give a covering of snow, a light dusting, maybe a centimetre in places. further inland, decent spells of sunshine. 0ut further inland, decent spells of sunshine. out to the west, again the risk of coastal showers driven in by the north—westerly breeze but slightly milder here, seven or eight, rain rather than snow. a good bit of sunshine down the spine of
the country but cold, two or three. some showers in northern ireland and western scotland but again, in the final piece of scotland, a cold afternoon, one or two. final piece of scotland, a cold afternoon, one ortwo. but nevertheless, drier and quieter weather in prospect. all change through the night, an early frost in eastern areas but out to the west, the cloud and rain doubters and a pretty dismal day in prospect if you have plans outdoors. quite a lot of rain around at times. temperatures to the far north just sitting below freezing. they could lead to a little bit of snow on the leading edge but as the mild air floods little bit of snow on the leading edge but as the mild airfloods in behind from the north and west, things will start to change. sunday looks a pretty overcast day. 0utbreaks looks a pretty overcast day. outbreaks of rain, not too heavy, but it could stay rather disappointing, especially through east anglia, a lot of low cloud, drizzle and murk. not much sunshine tomorrow so generally milder air piling in behind, nine or ten, tomorrow so generally milder air piling in behind, nine orten, but east anglia could be the exception
where it could be rather cold, grey and disappointing. what's in prospect or early next week? i've finished the bulletin with a tree coming out of my head! chilly conditions in the far south—east but it looks as though the further north and west you go, rather cloudy but mild. think it was a tree to begin with, i thought it was a flamboyant hairdo! thanks very much! we'll be back with the headlines at 6:30am. time now to take a look at some of this week's big cinema releases in the film review with mark kermode and gavin esler. hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. so mark, what do we have this week? we are in award season. we have la la land, which everyone is talking about.
live by night, the new film by ben affleck. and manchester by the sea, with the standout performance by casey affleck. la la land. you have seen this. fantastic. damien chazelle's swooning tribute to classic old hollywood musicals. singing in the rain and umbrellas of cherbourg. emma stone and ryan gosling of the star—crossed pair who meet in an la trafficjam. it's a fantastic opening. a wonderful song and dance number. he is a jazz player, she is an aspiring actress. they hate each other when they meet but they become friends and will possibly become more. here's a clip. i got a call back. what? come on. for a tv show. the one i was telling you about. congratulations. i feel like i said negative stuff before.
like a rebel without a cause. i got the bullets. yes. you've never seen it. i've never seen it. it's playing at the rialto. you should go. i can take you. 0k. for research. yes. monday night at ten o'clock. yes. great. for research. you're grinning all the way through it. i loved it. you and everybody else. i went into it thinking, the problem is everybody said it is so good it will be a disappointment and it isn't. it is really, really good. firstly, this is damien chazelle's second musical. he made another one before, he made whiplash which was drums as a war movie. full metal hi—hat we called it. from the beginning, it said it was presented in cinemascope and the screen opens up into this glorious cinemascope, digital colours.
there is a fabulous dance sequence. it is like the kids from fame but done in la. then what the story does is it occupies a space between on the one hand this nostalgic clunkiness of woody allen films and the free—form fluidity of gravity. in fact there is a scene where we are literally flying. i thought the performances were terrific. emma stone dominates it. she plays somebody who has two go to an audition she plays somebody who has to go to an audition and act being an actor. i thought the song and dance numbers were well choreographed, i loved the lyrics, i love the way in which... people have said they are no fred and ginger. they are not meant to be. damien chazelle said he wanted to make something that has the magical of musicals but also had its feet on the ground. it has the texture of real life. i think it does have that.
i thought it was utterly charming. and it is not afraid to be melancholy or poignant, it is notjust everything is tied up neatly, it is... its strengths are in its sad streaks which makes the joyousness even more. i thought the opening five minutes was worth the price of admission alone. it's brilliant. it appears to be one shot. also, we have talked about casablanca and being remade badly, this is casablanca for our times. in many ways. absolutely right. it is a movie that is good enough to nod very explicitly to casablanca and not go, you blew it. i really liked it. so did i. live by night. so, ben affleck stars in an adaptation of a novel. he is a small—time hood in prohibition boston and doesn't want to be a gangster.
he finds himself travelling to florida where he becomes exactly what he didn't want to be. he goes up against the ku klux klan. the interesting thing about the film is it has an extraordinary pedigree. chris cooper, elle fanning, and affleck himself. i think one of the reasons it has sniffy reviews is when you have that kind of talent, people expect something more than a film which is ok. you said invoking casablanca, this film invokes the godfather and scarface and it is neither of those films. it is handsome but in a way which is artificial. it does look good and there are... certainly, i wasn't bored. but it does have a sense of its handsomeness is more important than any depth. it is very much to do with surface. there is stuff in there to like it but at no point did i think this was a classic.
when you look at the pedigree involved in it, itjust ought to be better than it is. argo which ben affleck also directed was one of the best films of the last ten years. it is really good. however, this brings us nicely to manchester by the sea. this is the third film by the playwright kenneth lonergan. he did margaret, which spent five years in the editing room. is he a genius or someone who cannot finish a film? this, as his third film, made me go, actually, he might be a genius. casey affleck plays a janitor. i'm not going to be here much longer. not moving to boston. you said you left his money so he could move. what's in bostong ? you are a janitor. so what? you can do that anywhere. there are clogged up toilets anywhere. all my friends are here.
i'm on the hockey team, on the basketball team. i work on george's boat. i've got two girlfriends and i'm in a band. you are a janitor. what the hell do you care where you live? so, he is a janitor in quincy but he is called to his hometown of manchester—by—the—sea where he has to revisit the ghost of the past after his brother collapses and he finds himself having to look after the nephew. the film is told in two time frames, the present in when he is going back to the past and the flashbacks in which we actually see the past. so much of the story is told in the way through which casey affleck holds himself. the scenes in boston when he is completely withdrawn and everything about the way he hunches his shoulders, the way he slightly purses his lips, it is a start contrast to the flashback scenes when he is garrilous, and oozing boozy bonhomie. we know his we will see his old life
with his beloved wife michelle williams and his new life where he is isolated and somehow we are going to find out how the isolation happens. it is very devastating. in one of the key sequences they use albinoni's agagio in g minor, that is a false move for me because it is used in many films. it was used in flashdance, gallipoli. it was used by wendy craig in butterflies. it was weird in that a film that was everything to do with the delicate nuances, it was too obvious. that aside, casey affleck is really terrific. kenneth lonergan deonstrates he is actually a very good craftsman. and to have la la land and manchester by the sea, showing the grittier side. this director has finally shown as he is worthy of the praise that
has been heaped on him. your best of the week is a monster calls. a monster calls came out just before christmas. it is about a young boy who was traumatised by his mother's ill—health, and he starts seeing visions of a tree monster, played by liam neeson, which says i will tell you stories and you will tell me your truth. it uses fantasy to address real—life down to earth problems and it does so in a way which is beautiful and utterly heartbreaking. i have had so many reports from people saying i knew i was going to cry but i had no idea how much. it is very moving, very touching. very well filmed. julieta is wonderful. it si the dvd of the week. i think it is the best since volver. it is based on short stories. they are playing younger and older verges of the same
central character who is estranged from her daughter. it does the thing that pedro almodovar does best which is a passion for human stories. it is profoundly cinematic. this has wonderful performances, wonderful writing. it is again heartbreaking but beautifully so. honestly, looking back at the selection of movies we have looked at, that is a good selection of films. a quick reminder before we go that you'll find more film news and reviews from across the bbc online at bbc.co.uk/film — and you can watch our previous shows on the bbc iplayer. that's it for this week though. thanks for watching. goodbye. the east of england has escaped major flooding despite fears that storm surges could hit towns along the coast. thousands of people were urged to leave their homes
as the environment agency issued 17 severe flood warnings for yesterday evening. by the early hours of the morning the threat had subsided, but the flood warnings remain in place and authorities continue to urge caution in affected areas. a clear plan for brexit should be published by february at the latest — that's the call from a group of mps. the exiting the eu committee is also calling for the prime minister to allow a vote in parliament on the plans before they're presented to brussels. the government says it will set out its plans by the end of march. jeremy corbyn will defend his leadership of the labour party today after claims by a centre—left think tank it was too weak to win an election. the fabian society warned labour would lose out on returning to power unless it could secure a coalition. at a speech in london, mr corbyn will say his party offers "a complete break from a rigged system." he'll also outline labour plans to bring care homes into public ownership. the us house of representatives has voted to begin the process to abolish president 0bama's health insurance laws, known as 0bamaca re.
the senate approved the measure on thursday. the law provides medical coverage for more than 20 million americans, but president—elect donald trump has tweeted that 0bamaca re "will soon be history." police in the united states say a girl who was stolen as a newborn from a hospital in florida 18 years ago has been found alive in south carolina. kamiyah mobley, who was living under another name, has made contact with herfamily via a video call. authorities say she's in good health but overwhelmed. police have charged the woman who kidnapped her. scientists have found a deep sea treasure with the sighting of the ruby sea—dragon in the wild. researchers filmed the brightly coloured species in western australia. it's the first time the 10—inch—long fish has been seen alive. it was declared a new species in 2015, making it the third known sea dragon species. it is hard to get your eyes on it.
looks like a little dinosaur. those are the main stories this morning. mysteries of the deep. and we are talking about the mysteries of chelsea. they were going so well in the premier league. and now there is a question mark over the future of their top striker. that is diego costa. is he injured? that is the rumour. but it could have to do with his mind—boggling pay. the future of diego costa at chelsea is in some doubt this morning. he's been left out of the premier league leader's squad for today's match at leicester, after a dispute with the club's coaching staff.
he's the premier league's top scorer so far this season, but is thought to have been the subject of an offer, from a chinese club, who could be willing to pay him, £30 million a year. speaking on five live, the former england midfielder jermainejenas, says this news will encourage chelsea's rivals. there will be tributes, around grounds this weekend to remember graham taylor. the first match in the premier league, sees third place tottenham, play west bromwich albion. spurs are hoping to build on their victory against chelsea last week, and not repeat, the dip in form, which followed their earlier win, against manchester city. a few months ago, if you remember, we had the performance, the fantastic victory. now, after chelsea, it is a great opportunity to show that we deserved it. to keep momentum will be key. tottenham's north london rivals arsenal, are currently outside the top four. they're playing bottom club swansea city later. it's swansea manager, paul clement's, first match in charge, and his rather longer—serving counterpart, arsene wenger, has been talking about the challenge facing him.
in the premier league, every game is different. you have to fight not to stay down. but it is an opportunity for him to be responsible in the premier league. i think when you have an opportunity like that, at his age, you do not turn it down. lam i am really looking forward to it. it has been a big ambition of mine to manage in this lead at this level. the first home game at swansea, going up against arsene wengerand swansea, going up against arsene wenger and arsenal, it will be a very special moment for me. leeds united, have moved up to third in the championship, after a 1—0 win, over derby at elland road. they're now, four points off the automatic promotion places. chris woods' headerjust before the break, was enough to seal a fifth home win in a row, for garry monks‘ side. it was an unhappy to return to his former club for
derby's bradleyjohnson, who was sent off late on. it's a potentially decisive weekend in european club rugby union. irish side leinster, are through to the quarter finals of the champions cup, after a big win over montpellier last night. the french side had a man sent off in the first half, and leinster took full advantage— jack conan, scored three of their eight tries in a 57—3 victory. bath also scored eight tries in their victory, over local rivals, bristol, in the second—tier challenge cup competition. england's, semesa rokoduguni one of the scorers in a 57—22 win. britain's dan evans will play in his first atp tour final this morning. he's due on court against gilles muller at around 8.30 at the sydney international. yesterday he beat andrey kuznetsov in three sets to reach the final. the first grand slam of the calendar, the australian open, starts on monday. traditionally, motorcross is an outdoor sport,
given that it involves racing motorbikes overs hills and through mud. but now it's come inside, and this weekend riders as young as ten are competing in the arena cross event in glasgow, for the second leg of the uk championship. i've been finding out more. take a lot of soil, dump it in an arena, and shape it into bumps and jumps, and you have a championship opening the great indoors to motocross. and it is attracting fans up motocross. and it is attracting fans up and down the country. it is rock and roll sport. that is how i try and roll sport. that is how i try and explain it. there will be seven legs at places like this across the country. dozens of riders, some as
young as seven 01’ country. dozens of riders, some as young as seven or eight, up to 35, 36. having seen all those pileups, imagine being a dad watching your tenure —— ten year old sons competing against each other. they have been driving since they were four. it is a nightmare. they are competitive. let us hope they finish in one piece. not many children can do this. it isjust incredible. on the same track as some of the world's top motocross riders, chasing the £100,000 prize. they sit on top of each other. it is difficult. bigger tracks. it is not as close a race. it is 18 laps, you know? such high intensity and short
laps. battling for second-place. .. it hit accessible. it is exciting. when you are in an outdoor track you can be in one cord and miss all the action in another. how would a com plete action in another. how would a complete novice and of the action?|j have complete novice and of the action?” have some kit. the bike is a bit bigger than me. first of all i will get on. this is only a 250 cc, but it is one of the most powerful and valuable bikes there is at the moment. i am valuable bikes there is at the moment. iam holding valuable bikes there is at the moment. i am holding on for dear life. they do not want to send me up in the air supplied it shows the power and sensitivity of these machines. —— in the air. they are having to hold on to me to get me over the loops. we are up and around. it will take a lot more coaching for me to get caught up
with dickie and his team. and i would have to do some hours in the gym to keep up with it. by sunday night, it is all gone, though. i was doing all right... element that was a dangerous video! incredible. sometimes they fall off but then they just incredible. sometimes they fall off but then theyjust get back on. brilliant. we will see you later on. thank you. it's nearly a month since the professional dancer, joanne clifton lifted the famous glitterball when she waltzed her way to becoming joint winner in strictly come dancing and now she's swapping the ballroom for the stage. next week she takes the lead as a new york flapper in the musical "thoroughly modern millie." phillip norton caught up with her in rehearsals. a few weeks ago, it was strictly

will be crunching our way up when we're off this morning but with the clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine coming through, it will be a pleasant day for many. the north—westerly wind just driving in more cloud and showers through northern ireland and west facing coasts of scotland and wales but here it's a bit milder, seven or eight. a cold start across east anglia, a frosty one and the risk of a few showers and if you get some snow we could see up to one centimetre, two or three. a west/ east split, a milder story in northern ireland and western scotla nd northern ireland and western scotland with a scattering of showers, seven degrees the expected high. through the night, we keep the clear skies in the east, an early frost but the cloud gathers from the west and on the leading edge or a time there could be some wintryness across the higher ground, some snow, but it should turn to rain through the night as the milder air pushes in. cold across the north—east but
already four or five degrees, so staying above freezing. that mild airwill staying above freezing. that mild air will continue to be the theme on sunday. these weather fronts will drift across the country bringing cloud and unfortunately bits and pieces of rain. not too heavy but it will be persistent light rain and drizzle on and off through the day. u nfortu nately drizzle on and off through the day. unfortunately it won't be a particularly great sunday. it will be milder, though, let's stay positive. milder out to the west, 10 degrees. in east anglia where the cold air clings on and we keep the cloud and drizzle, quite chilly and it may stay chilly in the south—east into early next week. some uncertainty on that, i will firm up on the details through the morning and with tomorrow as well. but the milder weather looks set to stay in the north—west but here it could be a touch on the cloudy side. back to steph and charlie. great to hear the positivity about that mild weather to come. we're back with the headlines at 7am. first, let's get all the latest technology news with spencer kelly
and the team, here's click. driving stateside can be a liberating experience. wide roads, big trucks, massive cars, but at a desert bottleneck like las vegas, it can be ever so slightly frustrating. beep, beep! come on. but today i'm driving an audi with a little more brainpower under the hood, sorry, bonnet. on my dashboard here i have
information about the current speed on it, and it also is telling me there is a red light that will turn green in about 30 seconds up ahead. three, two, one. here we go. the car is connected to las vegas‘s traffic management centre over ag. it reports its position and the centre tells them how long until the next light turns green. indicate left, and the control informs me about the left filter light instead. and round we go. one of the advantages, says audi, is that it's a bit of a stress and tension relief as you know you have some time before the light goes green so there's no point getting all impatient. at the moment, this is only available in certain models of car,
and only in las vegas, because this city has just one traffic management centre that handles all of the lights. some cities have more than 100 different authorities in charge of their signals. so, one obvious use for this in the future is to feed into an autonomous driving system. if the car knows when the lights are going to go green in front of it, then it can better driver itself. of it, then it can better drive itself. if it has some kind of backup data signal from the traffic management system then it should get it right more. which is a good thing. it'sjudging that i'm not going to make these lights. oh, and it's right. the car was right and i was wrong. sorry about that! now, i do not know much about the car industry, but what i do know is getting
into it when you're a new player is really tough, and complex, and expensive. faraday future is a company that heard all of those warnings and thought, eh, let's try anyway. how is that going for them then? dave investigates. faraday future, a new car company that promises to beat tesla at its own game. last year at ces they showed us a scale model of a concept car they had no real intention of making. this year they promised something more, well, real. introducing the ff91. they're pretty proud of it, they say it can do zero to 60 quicker than a bentley or a ferrari, and of course, a tesla model s. it can even park itself. just press a button and... record rip it seems like it's being a little bit lazy tonight. i'm being cruel.
it can park on its own. i saw that for myself. slightly wide at the minute. this is a three—point turn. one of the reasons we do that is because we want to make sure all of the sensors in the car, of which there are many, can get a full view of the empty spot to verify there is no one there. look at that. spot on. straight. i'm impressed with that. it is all well and good, but it will be some time before you can actually do this yourself. each and every car park will need to be approved by faraday future before the feature will work. and it will rely on data on the system and future cars so it is less chicken and egg and more chicken and $150,000 car that isn't even on the market yet. speaking of which, faraday future have promised it will be ready by 2018. there is a lot of potential and promises but it is hard for them to deliver. the factory they need to build this thing for example, they showed a video of it and it isjust a pile of dirt
at the moment. ah yes, the factory. to build its car, they have planned a huge plant in the nevada desert planning to become at least partly operational to make the cars next year. there are reports the factory is on hold because they are running out of money. hello? it looks ready for construction but there is no equipment, no materials. and if they want this place ready by 2018, it doesn't look like they are making much progress. we are resource—limited at sometimes. things like this need to take priority. construction of the factory has stopped for some point and it still looks like it is stopped. it will start soon. was it because of financial restrictions? it is a matter of keeping the cash flow balance between the projects we are trying to do.
not too encouraging. but the good news is if they ever release a car it will blow your socks off. all right. heads back. hold on. let's go! oh my god! that is so quick. oh my god! this is now the fastest production vehicle in the world. and we are just getting started. well... well it is not very useful on a school run, is it, really? hello, and welcome to the week in tech. it was the week facebook announced it would start trialling ads in the middle of videos, and norway became the first country in the world to turn off its analogue radio signals. it was also the week the us military released footage of a test in california where it launched a swarm of 103 mini drones into the sky from fighterjets. the unmanned aerial vehicles were deployed to operate autonomously. it's thought the system could potentially be used to carry
out surveillance operations in the future. hello, i'm charles martinet and i'm the voice of... it's a me, mario! woo—hoo! and luigi too! haw—haw! and wario! and baby luigi! and baby mario! let's go! ya—hoo! and that was charles martinet, the voice of mario, nintendo's most famous character. and he's helping us to introduce ninty‘s brand—new games console. it's a little bit different as you might expect and marc has been trying it out. nintendo switch is an unusual games console because it does a couple of different things. firstly it's a portable machine. it's got this tablet like touchscreen with a 720p resolution, it can be played out and about on the move and then when it docks in this
little station here, like mario after he has chowed down on those power—boosting mushrooms, it supercharges the machine graphics capabilities up to 1080p full hd and can be played using a normal television becoming a home console. the controllers, which nintendo has dubbed joycons, can slide off the side of the portable unit and they can be configured in a couple of different ways. the individualjoycon parts can be used for multiplayer and when it's docked, the player can use a separate controller or plug them into a battery pack, turning them into this beast. now, thejoycons have got a number of different motor control features that can be demonstrated in this mini game here. it's called quickdraw and weirdly what it does is it pulls the player away from the screen and towards one another. so to that end i have a cowboy opponent here and we're going to have a shootout. so let's load our weapons, get ready. this is where you get your best clint eastwood on. and i live to fight another day!
but what that ably shows is that the designers are thinking differently about the kind of games that can be played using this device. as far as games are concerned, in the works is a new title for the portly italian plumber, the real—world set super mario odyssey and the legend of zelda: breath of the wild. nintendo's last console, the wii u, had a bunch of issues from day one. a lot of gamers thought it was additional controller for their already wii console, where in fact it was a brand—new console. with the switch they have the same issue again but this time they have to nail down the third—party support and getting more of the core gamer back on board with their product. perhaps the biggest hurdle for the switch is its price. at £279, the switch might have a tough time against its rivals
from microsoft and sony. we'll find out when it's released on march the third. bbc click, here we go! i've been out of bed for precisely the length of that report. about time i turn in for the night but oh, no, i've forgotten to make the bed. fortunately i've got a smart duvet, which means that from anywhere in the world i can click the app and the thing makes itself. it's got an inflatable sheet inside and the idea is you programme it to do this at any time you want on any day you want. yes, it is a bit noisy but the idea is you're not meant to be here when it does it. it might scare the cat mind you. but that's not the end of the story. if you're a snorer or you sleep with a snorer then pay attention because tonight i am sleeping on nora, which is an anti—snoring device you put under your pillow. if this microphone detects the sound of snoring during the night, it will activate this silent fan which inflates nora, moving the pillow and your head just
enough to reactivate your throat muscles, open your airways and stop you from snoring. you can track how many times it's been activated during the night on the app if you want, or you canjust have a good night's sleep, safe in the knowledge that whoever else is in the room with you is also getting a good night's sleep. night night. hello. this is breakfast, with charlie stayt and steph mcgovern. the prime minister says gps in england must extend their hours to ease pressure on accident and emergency services. theresa may says funding to doctors will be cut if they don't provide a 12 hour, seven day service, or prove that it isn't needed. good morning.
